Body: Small, up to 35 mm (or more in cultivation) smooth soft to the touch which are not at all lumpy or rock like as in pleiospilos, brown-purplish to green-grey, dots all over, leaves are ovoidal- clavate (triangular with fat rounded tips) and never keeled.
Flower: Solitary, diurnal, yellow 25-35 mm wide producing a strong spicy scent.
